      My hotel doesn't have AMC, so how the hell am I supposed to watch Breaking Bad!?

      I'm now having my wife Facetime with me while pointing the ipad at the TV at home... This is sad.

      So, I'm writing this in a hotel in Indianapolis. I'm out here for three weeks of training for my new job. After training, I will start out at the Pittsburgh International Airport. Its all a little crazy.

      Oh, also, I just bought a house. Life is moving way too fast right now.

      So, I got bored last night and editted most of my clips from halo 3 and Halo: Reach into a video and put it on the youtubes. Check it out!

      Today is my birthday. This year I don't feel much like celebrating as I don't feel I accomplished anything the whole year. 26 was a waste.
      But, after my work week ends on Sunday I'm having a big family meal at Red Lobster and I'll be happy. Possibly drunk, too!

    • That RTX thing.

      6 years ago

      PJSantillo

      So, its been a few weeks and I still haven't written about my experience at RTX this year. I'm sure no one is sick of people posting their RTX journals smiley8.gif

      I'll start where I left off... and I'll probably forget stuff.

      Friday, after dinner Jess and I met up with Optimumforge for drinks. Landon was kind enough to introduce us to KnucklesDawson. Why drank for a couple of hours and then headed down to Buffalo Billiards for the Sidequest Child's Play Auction. Not before we stopped at Frank for more delicious dogs and chocolate covered bacon again! I got some kinda of sloppy drunk at the auction and tried really hard to blow a lot of money on a lot of really cool stuff. Unfortunately, Jess was there and she's smarter than me. She wouldn't let me bid $350 for the cardboard cutout of Joel which would have looked great in our living room. Strangly, she really wanted the cardboard cutout of naked Gus... weird...

      Saturday morning, i decided to show up ON TIME to the convention hall... That was stupid! Of 4000 people i was about 3700th in line. When I finally got onto the show floor I found my only real beef with the new bigger RTX, it was SO crowded. I know they've already talked about it on the podcast and everything, but I have to say it, There was no room in that exhibit hall! By the time that we had gotten into the hall, every line was pretty crazy, so we just went to get in line for the RT panel. Before getting in line, I stopped for a cig and in that time the line damn near doubled in length... That cig cost me the RT panel by 17 spots... I guess smoking really is bad!
      We made it into the 343i panel which was great, got to look at Forge in Halo 4 and watch Jack and Geoff play horse. I'm getting such a boner for Halo 4!!
      The concert/ mixer on Saturday was INSANE! The Videri String Quartet, Trocadero, and Jeff Williams were all incredible. I'm really hoping that they make a DVD of the performance, it was that good! I was really hoping to get to meet up with Jeff and hang out like last year, but he was clearly busy with the show so I understood.

      Sunday, things just seemed to go right. I got to the convention center two hours before the floor opened, walked right in and got in line for Halo 4 WHICH WAS AWESOME! I say again, HALO 4 WAS TITS!!! Other than the fact that I'd kinda forgotten Halo controls and I immediately threw a grenade at my feet, after that amazing! After that (and running back to the hotel to help Jess find her wedding ring!) we went and got in line for the RT Podcast. In line we happened to run into Kelly and Ron, giving us someone to talk to and spend the next 1 1/2+ hours waiting with. Kelly ended up getting onto the podcast, so great for her! The podcast itself was great, that's how I want to experience every podcast from now on! The interaction was great!


      Well shit... Looks like I actually have to do some work at work tonight... I'll have to continue later. This was getting long winded anyway...
      See Yinz Later!

      I still haven't had the time to sit down and write about RTX, but I'm at work and I just burnt my finger prints off...
      I thought that was worth writing a whole journal about... I can see now that I was not.

      The End

    • RTX trip update

      7 years ago

      PJSantillo

      Finally sat down for a moment to post an update on our trip so far.
      We left Sunday afternoon and made it as far as Nashville, TN. Slept at a friends house and made it for LA the next morning.
      We spent the next night with Paul (Chargerram77) and his lovely family in Lousiana the next night. They were so kind to put us up for the night and take us out for a wonderful anniversary lunch the next day. I even got to ride in the legendary Charger myself! Let me tell you, that things got some BALLS on it! That is, as long as the battery is charged!
      I also played a little Halo: Reach with his two awesome sons!

      On Tuesday, our anniversary, Jess and I went to New Orleans for a night. That was terrible! Why would anyone go there?! Bourbon Street was just a dirty back alley that smelled of sweat and horse shit! A crackhead in a wheelchair chased us and I got taken for $10... Jess is still mad about that, but it was worth it to me to get away from the guy!
      The best part of New Orleans was the kick ass suite we had in the Roosevelt... and the hotel bar.

      Needless to say, very happy to be out of there. We rolled into Austin at about 10:30 Wednesday night. All day thursday we walked around doing the touristy things like checking out the capitol. I was on a mission to find Frank again and have some ridiculous hotdogs, mission accomplished! I might be going back before this trip is over. We saw Spiderman last night at the Alamo, which was, in my opinion, the best Spiderman to date! Seriously, they nailed it!
      7515728674_a1ec6f220e_b.jpg

      Tonight, the only thing I really have planned is to meet up with some of the guys from last year's RTX and have dinner at the Salt Lick.

      7515737632_43fcb33d47_b.jpg

      If you're in town and want to meet up for food or beers, let me know. Otherwise, maybe i'll see you on the show floor!

    • Mandatory OT

      7 years ago

      PJSantillo

      Balls.... This sucks! We've been on mandatory overtime for weeks now, with no end in sight.
      I just keep thinking that this is all going towards having more spending money at RTX. July can't come soon enough!

    • ugh..

      You know, I'm about as good maintaining this journal as any other I've tried. I filled one up from 5th-9th grade. The one I started after that isn't half full and hasn't been written in in probably 8 years... Jess isn't even in it!

      Anyway, I swear I hardly have time to think anymore. Most days off (and there aren't many lately) have been spent running back home to PA to visit friends and family. Like my niece!
      7163496806_6e8f6b5f49_b.jpg
      How cute! Three years old and already trying to carjack me...

      I've been working a lot of overtime at work trying to get these planes out of the hangers. We have room for 2 legacys at most in our facility and we have four 96 month inspections coming in on top of each other! So you know, a 96 month inspection takes about 2 months and these planes are all due out around the same time... I've managed to carve out a nice little niche for myself as an inspector. Though not an official title, the supervisors of these inspections have been fighting over me lately for fuselage inspections that take a couple weeks alone to do.

      7163518118_2f6f65a9d2_b.jpg
      So, I've pretty much been staring at this for the last three months straight... and I kinda love it! This is what's under the floor in any plane you fly on, and its up to me to make sure everything is in the right place... And not corroding to shit! Inch by inch by inch... To put it in perspective, I can only inspect about 5-7 feet in 10 hours... pretty intensive...

      Uhhh, I guess I'm getting a little long winded with this, but sadly, all I have to talk about is work related... OH! I GOT A BEER FRIDGE!!!
      7163569594_f3b062a093_b.jpg
      It's so beautiful!

      So... That's pretty much it, planning continues for RTX. Just counting down really.
      I still check the site non-stop (it's not like I work hard), so please, let me know how you guys are doing!

      And I leave you with one more picture:
      7163561770_89f4199671_b.jpg
      Looking from one overdue inspection to another... Sigh...
      Arrivederci!
